🌱Looking For A New Home + Furry Friends Ready For Love

Hey, everyone! It’s Friday in Avon-Avon Lake and I’m back in your inbox with everything you need to know about what’s happening in the community today. Hope you all have a great day.


First, today’s weather:

More humid in the afternoon. High: 85 Low: 66.


Here are the top three stories today in Avon-Avon Lake:

  1. When you’re in the market for a new home, keeping tabs on all the latest listings can be a wearisome job. That’s why we here at Patch have stepped in and done the prepwork for you.
    Here’s a sampling of the latest batch of houses to hit the market in the Avon-Avon Lake area — such as one in the Avon area with three bedrooms and one bathroom for $177,400, and another in the Avon Lake area with four bedrooms and four bathrooms for $650,000.(Avon-Avon Lake Patch)
  2. Want to add a furry friend to your family? Look no further than these Avon-Avon Lake animal shelters for a pet available for adoption. Many shelters in the Avon-Avon Lake area are still working to fulfill adoptions. Over 6 million pets are taken in each year by animal pounds nationwide, according to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. However, only around half of all these animals are adopted each year, according to ASPCA data. This means millions of animals—some right here in the Avon-Avon Lake area—are still waiting for their forever homes. With help from our friends at Petfinder, Patch has compiled this week’s list of animals available for adoption near you. Whether you’re looking for cuddles or companionship, one of these animals could be the perfect fit for your family. (Avon-Avon Lake Patch)
  3. Two of Ohio’s oldest high school cross country meets will be held Saturday on opposite sides of Northeast Ohio. The 50th annual running of the Mentor Cardinal Classic will be at Garfield Park in Mentor, and the 44th annual Avon Lake Early Bird Invitational will be at Lorain County Community College in Elyria,” according to cleveland.com. Who will you be cheering for and where will you be? (cleveland.com)
